Before You Visit

With Ruthless, on all our island day excursions, we will always fish on the way to and from each destination. In the morning when we pick you up from West End at 7am coffee, juice and water is served with a nice breakfast spread, fruit, snacks and all your drinks are included all day. Lunch will be set up at all of the destinations for that day. Snorkeling and sightseeing is always on the list (bring your cameras!). We will usually have around 2 hours at each place to explore, snorkel, eat and relax.

There will be a point when we will ask everyone on the charter what they would all like to do most; such as hang out a little longer, go fishing, or snorkel a little more. There are always a few options to make the day more fun and fitting for everyone! On our way home we will fish and of course look out for dolphins, whale sharks, sperm and pilot whales.  If we catch fish like tunas we will filet them on the boat and serve them Sashimi style with Wasabi & Soy dipping sauce! Yum! These trips are a real blast and you will go home with a memory to last a lifetime!


Weather

We ask for a range of dates that you will be in Roatan since certain trips can be quite dependent upon weather. Ruthless Roatan is committed to providing you with a quality experience and that starts with favorable weather conditions.

After more than 6 years working on the waters of Roatan you can trust that we will always put your safety and comfort first. All of our scheduled charters are weather dependent and subject to the discretion of the owners and captains. 


Deposits

A refundable deposit via PayPal is required to make a reservation with Ruthless Roatan Charters. We require a partial payment to secure your spot with us.  This makes things easier, since you will not have to scramble around when you arrive, which of course will maximize your relaxation time. 

 

how to make a deposit

We will email you detailed instructions on how to send payment to secure your reservation through PayPal. After payment has been sent, we will confirm your reservation. Allow one business day for us to confirm. Please be patient with our correspondence as we are often out on the water!
